Location within Somerset
|Town or city||Crowcombe|
It was built, in English regional baroque style, by Thomas Parker, for Thomas Carew, and finished by Nathaniel Ireson of Wincanton, after Carew found that Parker had taken old coins, found while demolishing the old house. Minor alterations were carried out by Edward Middleton Barry around 1870.
The house has amber coloured bricks complemented by Bath stone pilasters and frontispiece. The interior includes plasterwork by Grinling Gibbons. The house was described by Nikolaus Pevsner as "the finest house of its date in Somerset south of the Bath area".
It has previously been used as a nursing home and today the Court is hired out for weddings and other functions.
The new owners of the house David and Kate Kenyon purchased the property in 2011. Kate is a direct descendant of James Morrison.
The gardens and parkland are listed, Grade II, on the Register of Historic Parks and Gardens of special historic interest in England.
